Through the pollen

Attempting to peer

Through Yellow Haze.

Eyes itching.

Chest heaving

Nostrils dripping

Tissues swiping

Shoes weighing

Body off balance

Sluggish thinking…

THEN:

Skies darken

Spring drizzles

Water-drops drenching

Tree branches dancing

Winds swirling

Quietly, dark clouds

Rolling onward…

Birds singing

Blue skies peeking

Shoulders lifting

Ahhhh, cleansing breaths

Clippity Clopping

Skipping flip flops!

HELLO! Clarity!

A small price

We’re paying.

Nature’s miracles

In Northern New England.

Kind Regards

and enjoying May – K

Received my copy yesterday! I am beside myself with hilarious joy and laughter.
Of course it also hit’s that special spot where love lives.

Perfection!! Simply Marvelous!!

And to think I did not expect anything less but received so much more!! ❤ <3.

Hello?

Can you see me?

You, sitting on the edge

Of my couch

Head tilted to your phone.

Can you hear me?

You sitting there

Physical body present,

Mindset unknown.

Can you talk to me?

You sitting there,

Quietly disengaged.

My inquiries,

Go unanswered.

Why are you here?

You sitting there,

Silent.

Me?

I feel trapped,

Sad,

Alone.

Kind Regards

and present – K

Infect

Individuality

Inside myself

I know my weakness’s

I know my strengths.

What triggers my tears,

What triggers my fears.

I have a grasp on

What brings me joy.

All that

Cannot define,

Me as a person.

Whether I’m bad

Or if I am good.

Not one thing

Above, can

Decrease my passion,

Deep within.

I WILL tell you,

I’m definitely NOT an

Opera Singer.

But with so many

Other things

I CAN DO!

My inner self

Knows I’m a winner.

Kind Regards and reminding you to concentrate on the positive – K

Empath? Huh? What?

Wow, you’re a What?

You feel that way, why?

****

Today I’m so

Tired, and drained!

Blah! ,Snore,!

Happy day, happy people!

Weeeee I’m dancing 💃!

🌷🦋🌷

Emotional UP!

Emotional DOWN.

Stop the roller coaster I wanna get off! 😝😜

Sounds bipolar doesn’t it!

I’m nuts!

Ahem, SURPRISE!

No! You are NOT nuts!

Goofy at times, giggles, but

Intelligent, hardworking, kind…. etc etc but definitely

NOT nuts!

Well I feel that way!

Mentor

Attitude

Your attitude

Ain’t nothing new,

I perfected it

Long before you,

Were even born.

Rather funny,

That I,

Once, just like you,

Thought I knew

Everything too!

Surprise!

I didn’t.

In time, my dear,

I have to say,

There definitely,

Will come a day.

The one you-

Realize,

The words,

I speak are true.

In life

There are

Unrealized moments

That will mold you.

People that will hold you.

Other’s that,

Will set you free.

That’s just the way

It’s gonna be.

No one knows,

What the years will bring.

My hope,

You take time

To observe and absorb

All of it in,

And do your very best.

May you keep

Your open heart,

Give hugs to those in need,

Be kind,

And plant some

Hope, silliness,

Along with

Happiness seeds,

Wherever your

Path may lead you.

One last wish,

Is mine, selfishly.

At some point,

That path your on,

Brings you back

Towards me.

Moms hearts

Have a need

For their

Children’s endless

Joy and possibilities

And the chance

To experience

all the

Glorious gifts

Our universe

Has to offer.

As I recall

Our story,

Isn’t new at all.

Seems my mom,

Did regale one

Similar .

I didn’t believe her, either.

🤔

Xxooxxoo

Mentor

Things Change

Tuesday morning he was

Laughing,

Tuesday afternoon he was

Gone.

The shock, brought silence.

Then tears

And grief.

Wednesday we awoke

To find his gift.

He must have whispered

In her ear.

“Let them remember me

With smiles,

Set them free from their pain.

Hence, Mother Nature

Gave us Spring.

In fond memory of Frank,

Gone but never forgotten.

Rest In Peace my friend.

Always You

In the beginning,

You were closer

Than anyone could ever be.

Little flutters, kicks and

Finally, I held you.

Then every night, up at 3.

To feed, rock and nurture.

My love surrounded us

To keep you safe and warm.

Back to work,

I had to go,

Throughout my day

Constantly, worrying

Wondering.

What were you

Doing, thinking,

Eating?

Often I would cry.

Until I rushed to pick you up,

My eves were spent

Holding, hugging, rocking

Singing you a lullaby,

Until you finally slept.

Lovingly I peered

Upon my sleeping babe.

And time continued on.

Seasons passed.

🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷

Days flew by

We tracked your height

With an old yard stick

A mark upon the door trim wood.

We were close

Life wasn’t perfect

But felt fabulous.

And Oh so good!

Soon you were off to school.

Everyday, I wondered

What you were

Doing, thinking.

As the sun went down

In our world.

After homework was done.

We sat around the

Kitchen table,

You would share your stories.

We’d laugh and giggle.

Often,

We’d rush to your

Baseball or basketball

Practice or a game.

As my day would

come to a close,

I would wonder

What was I doing

Right or wrong?

Was I teaching you enough?

Giving you life’s resources

To be

Accomplished in your life?

Often I searched for answers,

As I laid there

Trying to sleep.

And time went on.

Seasons passed.

Now,

As the sun gently rests

At the end of my day.

Random texts arrive.

Phone calls,

I’m blessed with

Pictures in the mail.

You share

what you are

Doing and thinking.

I am proud of what

You are accomplishing,

In your daily life.

When I go to bed at night.

I smile and am

Ever so thankful.

Knowing it’s time

And patience

That has kept us growing closer.

Though distance keeps us apart.

As the years go by

And the seasons pass.

As it has always been

Since your arrival.

No matter how old you are

Or where your life

Might take you,

In my heart

The truest love.

Will always belong

To you.❤️

Kind Regards and thinking about my children -K

Authentic

Each Morning I Awake

Saturday morning

I awaken,

Start the coffee,

Let the dogs out,

Let the dogs in,

It’s another day.

I pour my first cup,

Steaming roasted gold

Into my favorite

Coffee mug,

☕️

Savoringly sipping,

Still groggy,

Mind blurry,

In my

Early morning daze.

Opening up my notebook

I jot today’s date,

Morning’s mind fog

Laggardly dissipates.

“Eighty percent of success is showing up.” -Woody Allen

Kind Regards and wishing you a fabulous Saturday -K
